Hi Mark,
bird is now fixed[1], I have submitted my patch network/bird which is a devel package for Factory, from where it should automatically move to Factory as part of daily batch jobs, for the future I will use your proposed workflow, which I think would would the same way in the end...

Thanks for all the feedback!
Best regards / S pozdravem,

Whether x86_64 is affected or not, please verify that whatever fix you
apply doesn't break other architectures, and then gets sent to
openSUSE:Factory, not openSUSE:Factory:zSystems. We created
openSUSE:Factory:zSystems for two reasons:
1. openSUSE:Factory doesn't build against s390x
2. For packages that might require major hacking before being submitted
to openSUSE:Factory.

Rather than trying to do local builds using qemu, just do an "osc branch
openSUSE:Factory:zSystems" for the package and let the mainframe build
workers do the build. Using qemu for that might take forever.
